:02:01.:02:13.

except when it comes to two new smartphone cameras with more pixels

:02:48.:02:58.

These men were shooting the fountain using a long shutter speed. That is

:02:58.:03:03.

a new feature on the Nokia. I joined them. The 1020 has five tiny motors

Clearly the image I am trying to problem.

Clearly the image I am trying to take is too bright for a long

:04:16.:04:23.

its own SD card, sending a smaller version on the phone for sharing.

:04:23.:04:27.

Because the lens is essentially a calmer in itself, we only use the

:04:27.:04:32.

phone to see what it can see. We can move the lens from —— up to ten

:04:32.:04:38.

metres away from the phone. We can get interesting angles. Even on its

:04:38.:04:45.

own, Z1 seems as good as a compact. That is when the software behaves

itself. From the moment you start the camera, the sensor starts

prefer a short they're, I can take it. Or maybe one towards the end.

:05:03.:05:11.

The camera also identifies movement before the shot is taken. It claims

:05:24.:05:30.

pretty good job. The Z1 let in more light with its wide aperture. While

:05:30.:05:37.

the Nokia merges information from seven pixels to create one.

impressive when you look at it was up. We will move on. Now to a clutch

:06:27.:06:35.

of watches that are trying to be everything. These are some of the

:06:35.:06:42.

smartwatch as we look at earlier this year. Some are a fully featured

:06:42.:06:49.

medication and media to —— devices in media. Some connect to your phone

:06:49.:06:58.

to a Bluetooth. While these watches were from smaller companies hoping

:06:58.:07:02.

to make a name for themselves, at IFA, two much bigger names were

:07:02.:07:10.

showing off their take. We asked the boss of one of these companies,

:07:10.:07:11.

Sony, whether the continuing Sony, whether the continuing

:07:11.:07:16.

shrinking of technology means we are destined for a future where we wear

:07:16.:07:21.

rather than carry out the prices. Whether it is a smartwatch or other

:07:21.:07:26.

so—called wearables, it will be an important market going forward.

:07:26.:07:34.

Let's start with Sony. Other straps are available. There is the time,

:07:34.:07:40.

nice and clear as long as the battery is charged. There is the

:07:40.:07:45.

touch screen with the icons. The first thing to know, you cannot

:07:45.:07:51.

listen to phone calls or speak into this watch to talk to someone who is

:07:51.:07:53.

calling you. This is a second calling you. This is a second

:08:16.:08:16.

can send replies. There are currently 300

:08:16.:08:23.

applications for this watch. Here is the other smartwatch. Samsung's

:08:23.:08:30.

you want to know the time, you have this, the screen.

:08:30.:08:39.

you want to know the time, you have to move your wrist in a definite

:08:39.:08:45.

way. As you can see, it is quite difficult sometimes to persuade it.

:08:45.:08:48.

You can always use the box and. difficult sometimes to persuade it.

backlight on the screen needs to be on for you to see anything.

:08:54.:09:00.

drive. Another key difference drive. Another key difference

:09:00.:09:05.

between this and Sony is that you can make phone calls through the

:09:05.:09:07.

watch. It has a speaker and a watch. It has a speaker and a

:09:07.:09:13.

microphone. You can talk into it and hear someone on the other end. It

:09:13.:09:17.

does not have a simulcast. You still have to connect it to your device

:09:17.:09:23.

group Bluetooth. It has to be a Samsung Galaxy device. Not any

:09:23.:09:29.

Android phone will do. You can also use the microphone and speaker to

:09:29.:09:33.

communicate to Samsung's personal assistant. This also has a camera.

:09:33.:09:42.

You can then transfer it to your phone at a later point. One big

:09:42.:09:51.

problem with smart watchers is that battery sapping backlight. Sony says

:09:51.:09:54.

every 2—4 days. Samsung says it will every 2—4 days. Samsung says it will

:09:54.:10:01.

only last for 24 alloys in normal use. Here is a third watch. Qualcomm

:10:01.:10:09.

uses a car Mirasol display. It is visible even when the backlight is

:10:09.:10:13.

off. It and now is the watch to run five days without a charge. When you

:10:43.:10:50.

the smartwatch is we just saw. I found it a little awkward to hold my

:10:50.:10:53.

arm up for minutes on end. Do you think the smartwatch is are a viable

:10:53.:11:02.

product? Is it too soon? They do have a weak battery. They do have

:11:02.:11:11.

some problems with the camera. We have a tiny display. Smart watchers

:11:11.:11:18.

will be very interesting and about wine or two years when we have more

functions and better functions. When functions and better functions. When

they look nicer, not so bulky. Waiting for the Next Generation? It

:13:55.:14:00.

one big announcement this week that was not made here. No surprise,

:14:00.:14:04.

considering that made it. Apple considering that made it. Apple has

:14:04.:14:08.

just unveiled the latest in the region of the device that

:14:08.:14:12.

kickstarted the smartphone movement. Richard Taylor took a closer look.

:14:12.:14:21.

After weeks of feverish hype and speculation, Apple has finally done

:14:21.:14:24.

what a lot of people that expected them to do. Taking the wraps off to

:14:24.:14:29.

new smart phones. They will replace the new currency narration iPhone.

There is the five S, which sports a processor twice as fast as the

current generation. It will allow a current generation. It will allow

on still mode. There is also a fingerprint sensor. It is not the

:15:00.:15:03.

first time we have seen a biometric reader on a smartphone. Hopefully

:15:03.:15:07.

this one will be a bit more smart than the devices we have seen

:15:07.:15:08.

before. It will allow than the devices we have seen

:15:08.:15:13.

authenticate yourself and buy things from the Apple App Store. The less

:15:13.:15:18.

premium version of the phone, the five

:15:18.:15:24.

squarely at the developing world, with a much lower price point. That

:15:24.:15:27.

appears not to be the case, it is only about $100 cheaper and looks

:15:27.:15:31.

fairly similar to the current iPhone five, except it is made of plastic

:15:31.:15:37.

and very lack of and glossy. It comes in five colours, all of that

:15:37.:15:40.

befitting of the new operating system the phones are going to run,

:15:40.:15:43.

which is very colourful and which is very colourful and

:15:43.:15:48.

:15:48.:15:51.

do enough to return some of the magic that Apple appears to have

share prices have suffered share prices have suffered

:15:56.:15:58.

accordingly. We will find out when they got on sale at the end of next

:15:58.:16:02.

week. Thanks, Richard. Plenty more to come

:16:03.:16:14.

from the tech expo here in Berlin. Now, this technology show is a great

:16:14.:16:22.

opportunity for us to seek whether the trends we be talking about have

:16:22.:16:27.

started to catch on. We have been talking a lot about 360 degrees

:16:27.:16:31.

photography this year, the idea sticking one shot and capturing

:16:31.:16:33.

absolutely everything about your surroundings. Well, smile. This is

:16:33.:16:40.

what we believe is the world 's first consumer 360 degrees camera.

:16:40.:16:45.

It actually has two cameras, back—to—back, and too superficial

:16:45.:16:51.

eye lenses. When you take a photo, this stitches the images together

:16:51.:16:54.

and send the results to your iPhone or iPod. I have to say the picture

:16:54.:16:58.

is pretty impressive. It was all the way up to the ceiling and all the

:16:58.:17:04.

way down to the floor. The only thing the device can't captures

:17:04.:17:06.

itself. You do need special software to view these kinds of images on.

:17:06.:17:11.

That will be an ILS out, the android Apple come later this year ——

:17:11.:17:29.

is still here. What are some of the is still

:17:29.:17:37.

tech trends you are seeing this year? We have tablets with eight

:17:37.:17:37.

tablets. We have these camera units year? We have tablets with eight

:17:37.:17:46.

tablets. We have these camera units we show before. We have robots which

:17:46.:17:51.

help you in the home. I have seen a vacuum cleaner which follows you so

:17:51.:17:56.

you don't have to pull it. I have seen a very tiny projector which

:17:56.:18:01.

doesn't need any power at all, it's connected to your mobile phone.

:18:01.:18:09.

That's a pretty nice thing to have. A new way to address the problem of

:18:09.:18:12.

a tiny screen. Thank you for your time. A bit more coming up.

can then change angles and start to go really crazy in three dimensions.

I am just starting out on this, so I thought I would show you the kinds
